NY publicist says Manafort wanted to pay him for Ukraine work via offshore accounts

A prominent New York City publicist says Paul Manafort and Rick Gates approached him in 2012 and asked whether they could pay him for Ukraine lobbying work via offshore accounts and avoid registering as foreign agents with the DOJ.

The publicist's experience mirrored the accusations laid out in a newly unsealed indictment against Manafort and Gates issued by special counsel Robert Mueller's team last week.


Georgia attorney general quits defense in server wiping case

The Georgia attorney general’s office will no longer represent state election officials in an elections integrity lawsuit in which a crucial computer server was quietly wiped clean three days after the suit was filed, The Associated Press has learned.

The lawsuit aims to force Georgia to retire its antiquated and heavily criticized touchscreen election technology, which does not provide an auditable paper trail.

The server in question was a statewide staging location for key election-related data. It made national headlines in June after a security expert disclosed a gaping security hole that wasn’t fixed for six months after he first reported it to election authorities. Personal data was exposed for Georgia’s 6.7 million voters as were passwords used by county officials to access files.

The assistant state attorney general handling the case, Cristina Correia, notified the court and participating attorneys Wednesday that her office was withdrawing from the case, according to an email obtained by the AP.

G.O.P. Collusion with Trump Continues Despite the Mueller Revelations

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, if you believe him, is not all that bestirred by the indictment of Paul Manafort, President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman. “I really don’t have anything to add, other than nothing is going to derail what we’re working on in Congress, because we’re working on solving people’s problems,” he told a Wisconsin radio host. What Ryan really wanted to talk about, he said, was tax reform. That suggests that Ryan doesn’t put possible foreign intervention in the election, or influence peddling, stealth lobbying, tax fraud, and money laundering—which are strands in the indictments of Manafort and his associate, Rick Gates, who both pleaded not guilty—in the category of “people’s problems.” News of the indictment was accompanied by the unsealing of a related plea deal that Robert Mueller, the special counsel, reached with George Papadopoulos, a former campaign adviser. These are questions that go to the heart of the integrity of our electoral and legislative systems. (Indeed, the Manafort indictment, because it concerned lobbying Congress on behalf of Ukraine, was in some ways as much in Ryan’s realm as in Trump’s.) Whose problem, one might ask, does Ryan think they are?
